Scale Aircraft Modelling

Scale Aircraft Modelling is the only title on the newsstand to address the needs and issues of the modern age, providing a focussed and essential content that is aimed to complement rather than compete with Internet access. The magazine presents preview material, features and full build reviews with a cross section of modelling, historical and reference. SAM makes best use of its pages with original research, thoughtful and incisive editorial, and an all-embracing approach to the hobby that invites readers to ‘look what you can do’ rather than ‘look what we can do’.

Printed on high quality stock the magazine offers a unique 8-page ‘subscribers section’ that adds even more to the busy content of a magazine that recognises white spaces belong only at the North Pole, that a magazine is bought to be read, and that readers wanting only to look at big pictures of models will find them online rather than paying a cover price.

More content equates to more value, and more value has enabled us to buck the trend and increase our sales despite the most pessimistic predictions from non-print media. That’s why SAM is the best all round scale aviation modellers magazine.

Military Modelcraft International

Military Modelcraft International is the UK’s leading military modelling magazine, with a truly global reach attracting the best modellers in the world to its pages. Each month MMI brings you a mixture of in-depth build articles, reviews of the latest kits and accessories, superb reference articles, and reports from model shows across the world. MMI’s focus is on providing you with the inspiration and knowledge to improve your own modelling skills and gain more from the hobby whether that be from archive photos and references or modelling tricks and tips. MMI is printed on high quality paper and available digitally with large, high quality photos and step-by-step guides that bring each featured model to life. During the year MMI has a number of special themed issues; recent special issues include modelling the armour of the recent conflict in Ukraine and the AFVs of the US Marine Corps and we have more planned. Whether you are new to the hobby or a seasoned veteran, you’ll find something in the pages of MMI each month to inspire and inform you.
